    Excellent post EngGuy18. I think it is a complete injustice how SPFD is already hiring from this list. Good luck to whoever decides they want to present this any further.

    Yeah I read that too. One thing I was questioning is that the St. Paul Fire website said 14 were hired, but the article says 12.... Did 2 not make it in? Let's hope this fall class is a bigger one... Kaiser where you at on the list?

    Yeah for interviews..... It sounds like they have only gotten into the 102.5 band so far..... Anyone in a different band get one?

    Oh they are well below the 105 and even the 102.5, but unless you are "protected class", you are SOL....
    But fortunately for us, we will continue to get many without any mechanical aptitude or physical skill....

    EFD102: if history plays out, yes. If memory serves, the last couple of lists, they made it to 92.5. So despite the city, read "human resources" BS, we still manage to get great hires. So don't get discouraged....

    The 88 letters was confirmed by Terry (Fire HR) however their were only 8 new letters plus the ones sent last time. Liz (city HR) was the one who told me they were in the 105 band but that could be a bunch of BS.

    Hey Rum, at least with the protected class individuals failing out of the academy you will have a well stocked Prevention division!!

    Ok i have a few questions....anyone can jump in

    Does this mean that the 80 candidates that received letters both times will go through another interview? What about the ten or so that dropped from the academy?

    How long will this list be good for? Will I even get an interview at 102.5?

    Finally how many "protected class" positions does St. Paul need to fill? Is there some kind of a quota?

    Thanks fellas

    How long will this list be good for? Will I even get an interview at 102.5? Typically the lists have been extended to about 5 years so you should get a letter/interview at some point

    Finally how many "protected class" positions does St. Paul need to fill? Is there some kind of a quota? Don't think there is really a so called quota

    Thanks fellas
    This is how I understand they send letters. For every one hire requested they send two additional letters plus anyone tied in that band. Once these letters are established they send an equal amount to protected class people anywhere on the list.....

    Thanks. It's quite the process isn't it. Trying not to get my hopes up every time they send out letters but it's impossible. I'm sure most of you are in the same boat.

    Yeah it is a tough process to just sit around and wait for when you know the kind of people they are bringing into the academy... Have you started Medic school yet?
